Sure outsourcing's an integral part of capitalism, but has it not gone too far when your kid's choking on his Chinese-made toy, and you can't even get through to tech support? Reigning things back in, Kent Denim
SF-based KD's a forward-thinking (and looking) jean and button-down line that shrewdly outsources its biz not to save a nickel, but to keep you swathed in the dopest garments possible; their raw denim and cotton comes from the finest mills in distant Japan and...New York City, where the production's done, ensuring your pants are both top quality and jerks. The jeans come in either relaxed or slim leg ("a tailored fit that's not too skinny"), and in two different materials: raw indigo denim that's got a rare green sheen to it, and dead-stock dark grey from a factory that's defunct, so nobody else'll have these jeans when KD runs out, except for other people who checked their email today. Up top, options range from a long-sleeved shirt in not-too-heavy blue and black flannel (with a black contrast collar), to lighter woven long sleeved pieces in red and blue gingham (with white contrast collars), to a tailored woven number in light blue or red checks, with a jumbo collar, but not a Dumbo collar, because that's for elephants!
Up next for KD's a series of super-comfy wool jackets with quilted lining, in grey and red/grey plaid (with blazer-style lapels and breast pockets), which you won't be able to get your paws on 'til winter, which may come sooner than you think and be nuclear -- thanks a lot, India!
